any chance this is gout related? I used to get gout alot. And that had totally to due with diet? Since diet is such a big part of this disease just wondered if this could in anyways be gout related. Am on a no lguten diet for UC and have been on pred through this first flare. Means I eat more meat. ( also more veggies which is a good thing ) But hut ahve been curious about
whats going to happen when they start to taper this pred. Will my new diet bring on a back gout attack? I know I have No aches or pains due to the arthitis because of the pred. Maybe our diets are helping the UC... but raising our uric acid levels and makin us more prone to gout? AM not a a doc or dietician so..... Its just a thought.
